UFC 120, which airs on tape-delay on Spike TV, is also expected to include the return of former WEC light heavyweight champ Steve Cantwell, who hasn’t fought since dropping a unanimous decision loss to Brian Stann in September.
An England native, Wilks (7-3) most-recently scored a unanimous decision over Peter Sobotta at UFC 115 to rebound from a November loss to Matt Brown. “Lightning” had previously won four-straight, including submitting DaMarques Johnson in June 2009 to win TUF 9’s 170-pound tournament.
Patrick (12-1) extended his win streak to 11-straight in his UFC debut, as he submitted Ricardo Funch in the second-round on the UFC 115 prelims.
